Finishing On A Whim

So, I’ve finished piecing the On A Whim quilt using 30s repro fabrics and some Kona Solids and I love it. I probably should’ve spent about 15-minutes before joining blocks into rows and rows into a quilt squaring up a couple of the blocks because they’re really off, making the rest of the row really off. But what’s done is done and likely, I’m the only one who’ll notice the mess.

Anyway, I got my name on the list at the local quilter so she can quilt it, but cannot drop it off until I get the right backing fabric and, let’s face it, I’m inherently lazy. Above all else, I dislike piecing backings and so, I’m waiting until the perfect backing is released mid-April to drop them off at the quilter’s.

Windham Fabrics, I love them so much, is coming out with a 108″ wide backing fabric in, you guessed it, 30s reproduction fabrics! So excited!!

There are four gorgeous prints to choose from:
And, I really love the cross-hatching, but I’m afraid it’ll be difficult to line up straight for the quilter, so I’m probably going to go with the blue flowers print.
